Claiming Your Territory

Duff photoDuff again. Mom and I were perusing Facebook the other day. My, oh my. So many pictures of Animals of all Sorts. Some of the best (My opinion) are the Dogs. But recently, there was an Otter Momma teaching her Young “˜Un how to swim. And the rescue of a Hawk stuck in the grill of a Car.

But the Very Best Ones are those of People with Other people, Smiling away. They often have their Arms around each other and are Snuggled in Tight. I suddenly realized why Mom points her Phone toward the Two of Us and Takes a Picture. She’s claiming Me. I belong to Her Crew, for She is my Pack Leader. And Together We live unstuck.

Then I also understood: The People taking Their Pictures together are Putting a Claim on each Other. “This is my Friend.” “We did This together.” Or even “This is what We had to eat.” (I can really get into the Eats, as you can imagine. Some of those Munchies even looked Quite tasty, for Foods of any kind are My Choice.) These folks are living unstuck.

How about You? Do You take Pictures to claim a friendship? Or perhaps create a Memory? Or document Something Really Hilarious? Or do You move through Life, enjoying the scenery and Taking Pictures with Your Heart? I say: Mix it up. Do either one, depending on your Mood or Inclination. Whichever choice You make, I suggest You bolster your Friendships and Thoroughly Delight in Your Claim of the Good Times. Live unstuck. #unstuckliving#claimyourterritory

PS: By the bye, I claim my Territory the ways all Dogs do. I’ll leave that to Your imagination.

Remember, there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
